There was once a time that, despite the immense popularity of the series on the internet, that getting a Touhou game in the West was an impossibility. Now we have two games being localized by two different companies and now one of those companies, NIS America, has announced that they are bringing another Touhou game to the West. The game this time is the roguelike Touhou Genso Wanderer which is set to be released on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita sometime in 2017.
The story of Touhou Genso Wanderer follows Reimu Hakurei. After touching a mysterious golden sphere in Rinnosuke Morichika’s shop not only does Rinnosuke begin to act strange, but a giant tower has appeared where Kourindo used to be. To make things worse, the population of Gensokyo has also been replicated by clones who attack people on sight. As the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, it is Reimu’s duty to resolve this latest incident and bring peace back to Gensokyo.
